Research Project

Collaboration in the Development of Behavioural Social Stories

This research examined the effectiveness of behavioural social stories to reduce behaviours of concern and restrictive practices.

Social stories are commonly used to describe and explain social situations or concepts to individuals in a supportive, clear and easily understood manner.

The project examined the extent to which behaviour support plans were being implemented in residential and day services. It also focused on theĀ barriers and enablers to effective behaviour support planning, as identified by disability support workers.

This project was conducted in partnership with the Centre for Disability and Developmental Health Victoria, Monash University and was funded through the Office of the Senior Practitioner, Department of Human Services.
